Admission

Let's be clear about it up front: to keep up with the IFMC programme you will need to be good at maths. You may have to do a maths exam before applying, if we feel that your secondary school maths grade is not of a high-enough standard. International Financial Management and Control has a four-year and a three-year programme, the latter differing only in its duration and study intensity. To qualify for this three-year programme, you will need the equivalent of a higher level Dutch VWO diploma.
